Teeth are important to us, but also to animals! In the 1970s, two strange looking carnivore teeth were found on the Old Crow River, in the northern Yukon. But, it wasn’t until this year that scientists determined these teeth belonged to an extinct species of ancient hyenas. These teeth provide the first evidence that hyenas inhabited the Arctic latitudes during the ice age.
What’s even cooler is you can see and hold these teeth in person at the Beringia Centre for one day only! Our pop-up exhibit will include activities for all ages, a new poster, palaeontologists for questions, and of course, these incredibly rare fossil teeth.
Join us on September 22, 2019 from 12-5 pm and check out these amazing teeth!
